Pandas don’t just exist in the wild. Or the zoo for that matter. No, you can find them on the wrist, aptly dubbed Panda dial replica watches online. Fear not, you don’t need to be well versed in the complexities of horological language to translate the jargon. It’s simply a white dial with (typically) three black sub dials, symbolising a pair of eyes and a mouth, and a reverse Panda, the opposite.
History prefaces the cheap fake Rolex Daytona 6239 as the catalyst of Panda Dial hype, thanks to some American actor (Paul Newman) and his penchant for panda patterns of watch dials. As the ultimate muse of the movement, incited during peak Simon and Garfunkel era, the copy watch world hasn’t stopped salivating over the veggie-eating cuties since.
Already convinced you wanna bag a panda for yourself? These are some of the most grailworthy Panda dial replica watches for sale on the market right now, vouched for by the experts, to kickstart or complement your watch collection.
Fake Rolex Cosmograph Daytona
There’s no Panda without Paul Newman, and there’s no Paul Newman without AAA quality replica Rolex. A one brand/one watch man, “the Rolex ‘Paul Newman’ Cosmograph became the most desirable watch of all in the late-1990s,” shares our fave Barbie bestie in the copy watch world, Ken Kessler. “It wasn’t the first ever Panda, but it is hands down the most famous, so it’s also the most influential.” Since its conception in 1963 through to today, it still cuts as one of the most celebrated Pandas in the zoo that is watchmaking. £12,700.
Replica Breitling Navitimer B01 Chronograph
“Brands like 1:1 replica Breitling [helped] pioneer the popularity of this iconic dial. At one point, chronographs weren’t even that popular, with a limited production of certain models,” says Karissa. Putting the desire back in the sub-dials, good old Willy B set the tone with the Swiss made fake Breitling Navitimer in 1952, honouring the wrists of pilot’s so that they could perform all necessary flight functions. And Breitling honours the lives of Panda’s too.
In December 2021, a late addition to a Phillips Auction stunned the watch world when Patek Philippe introduced one of those high quality fake watches that takes trends and flips them on their head. In barged the new Patek Philippe 5711 Nautilus Ref. 5711/1A-018, co-signed Tiffany & Co, with a dial colour so important, it would inspire swathes of watchmakers to hop on board with their own iterations. While it’s unlikely than anything but another 5711 Tiffany will hammer at a whopping US$6.5m, we’ll dive into those who hit the mark with their alternatives.
Fake Swatch x Omega Moonswatch – Mission to Uranus
The cheap fake Omega Moonswatch needs very little introduction. But one colourway out of the 11 available stood out significantly to collectors and instantly became the “Tiffany Blue”. The Mission to Uranus, although a slightly different hue to the actual blue used by the New York jeweller, is the only watch in this list to feature a fully coloured case, produced in Swatch’s “Bioceramic” plastic technology. Given the timing, it’s clear that Swatch purposefully selected this specific colour choice as a major marketing move – and it worked. If the whole release process around this collection wasn’t enough, the Mission to Uranus quickly became one of the hottest pieces in the series with it’s attractive case colour, and of course, the fact it’s a pseudo-Speedmaster. The affordability of this piece also counts towards it earning a solid place in this list.
Replica Rolex Oyster Perpetual 36 ref. 126000
The best 1:1 fake Rolex Oyster Perpetual is Rolex’s entry-level model (once trading at the same level as a Daytona), although that term is rather moot when we’re reminded of Rolex availability. In 2020, Rolex released the carefully named “Turquoise Blue” dial as part of their collection update – and instantly it stood out as the key piece in the three-hander collection, and in typical AAA quality replica Rolex fashion, was aptly labelled with a nickname… the “Tiffany”. The famous New York jeweller has a history with Rolex – offering dials printed with their logo in the past, however this piece bears no connection whatsoever, other than the dial being an extremely close match to the trademarked colour. Nevertheless, this is completely irrelevant, because the rest of the world sees it as the “Tiffany”, and as such, it’s incredibly difficult to obtain. The 41mm Rolex replica for sale is now discontinued, however if you’re extremely lucky, the watch is still available from Rolex in 36, 34 and 31mm variations.
We now proceed to the 1:1 fake Rolex Day-Date ref. 18200 series that debuted in 1988. Rolex once again upgraded the movement to the new caliber 3155. The most important feature of the movement was the double-quickset feature. It allowed owners to change the weekday and date indicators easily.
Therefore, this series offers modern practicality with the classic perfect replica Rolex Day-Date looks, and that’s why many enthusiasts consider buying this reference as their Day-Date. Fratello’s own Robert-Jan owns the yellow gold aaa quality replica Rolex ref. 18238 that you see pictured. It is an absolutely iconic piece in this configuration.
But it would not be luxury replica Rolex if there weren’t a wide variety of different versions available. I love the white gold ref. 18239 with the wooden dial in the photo above. The combination of materials in both color and texture is understated yet stunning. But there are also plenty of flashier versions of the 18200 series if you are not scared of the incredible show-off factor that the Swiss made fake Rolex Day-Date offers. Prices for a yellow gold ref. 18238 start around roughly €14.5K and move up to well over €50K for a unique and colorful dial. But knowing that you can get a ref. 18238 in great condition with the box and papers around roughly €20K is quite a great realization. It’s the only super clone watch you’ll ever need.
